Just a quick note about this: since many of you met LeNell Smothers at Tales of the Cocktail this year, I wanted to put it out there that she’s lost the lease for her store in Brooklyn and is looking for a new storefront. She has to vacate by next summer. It might seem that 10-12 months is a long time, but when you have to find and possibly renovate a new location, that’s a crunch.
The Times has the full story. I meant to link out to this earlier, but the week got away from me.
She runs one of the best liquor stores in the whole damn country, and she’s a great person to boot, so keep her in your thoughts.
